SMOKE AND MIRRORS


      B/E           E
      When I was a boy

      B/E              E
      all the books I read

         A
      I followed like a blind man


      to heed the words my father said.


      

             E              B          E
      Those golden summers faded into night,

       B               E
      words become a dream,

          A
      the echoes of my childhood

           B
      and where the path is winding.


      

       G
      May God bless you,

       F                          G
      keep you safe from all harm.

                             C
      Oh, may I stand by you always.

       G
      Time and motion.

       F
      Hands touch,

                     G             G/F   F   Em/F   Dm/F   C/F   Dm/F
      lips find a way to heaven on high.




      E    B/E    E    B/E     A/E


      

       B/E                 E
      Watch the children play,

      B/E                  E
      the child becomes a man,

          A
      and all the tangled webs we weave,


      you swear it as we live and breath.





          E              B               E
      We stay together, death until you part.

       B                 E
      Winner takes the prize.

          A
      The future's at your finger tips,

       B
      right before your eyes.


      

      G
      No more sorrow (smoke and mirrors).

      F
      No more nights with no end. (I really learned a lot)

  G               C
      I see my tomorrows (smoke and mirrors)


      


  Am                       E7
      And nothing from nothing.

                      Am
      And ashes to ash  es, they say.

  F                              E7
      All the more that you reach out

                           F
      the more that it runs away.


      

G                   F
      Smoke and mirrors.

                         (No more goodbyes)            (No   lies)
      That's all I ever got,              smoke and mirrors.

                                   G                     G/F
